Apple Pies

I know, I’ve made a few pies lately. But see how these are different? Look at how adorable these are! I mean, come on. Could you resist? I sure couldn’t. We ate them before I had a chance to think about pictures. Oops. This is why I had leftover dough for that impromptu dinner. Although this recipe is a little time consuming, it’s no harder than making any sort of real pie. It still involves slicing fruit. Rolling out crust and making it look pretty. Mixing fruit and sugar and cornstarch. And taking bites with your eyes closed so you can focus solely on each flavor. Please give these a try. Apple Pies Inspired by Pinterest 1 prepared pie dough, rolled out and sliced into strips 6-8 large apples (really any kind of apple will do) 1/3 cup sugar, plus more for sprinkling onto the crust 1/3 cup brown sugar 1 tsp cinnamon 1/4 or 1/2 tsp cardamom, if desired 1 tsp cornstarch Juice of a lemon or lime, mixed with 1 cup of water 1 tbsp melted butter Preheat the oven to 375F.

My own children were amazed at how real these little cakes appeared. Thai Curry Chicken Noodle Soup (Khao Soi) In this monthly series, I commit to cooking whatever is on the cover of Bon Appetit, Saveur or maybe some other food magazine. There’s a reason these particular dishes are on the cover – they’re usually the best recipes in the magazine. The cover of the March issue of Bon Appetit proclaimed “HOT SOUP!,” and I knew I had to jump right on it before the weather got warm again here in Michigan.

Baked Egg Boat recipe Breakfast is my favorite meal. I like to drink iced coffee and watch the cream climb its way down the chunky ice cubes in a dazy before the caffeine hits. I like to order bacon with whatever I’m eating. I like eating potatoes with ketchup. I like eggs over easy, and fluffy scrambled eggs. I pretty much like everything there is to like about breakfast. 10 Tasty Mug Cakes That You Can Make in Just Minutes By bellalimento | I’m sure you’ve heard of cakes that you make in a microwave in MINUTES.

I think it turned out beautifully — I love the idea of bottled light! These would be pretty by a wintery window or under an entry table.

Nutter Butter Peanut Butter Pie Nutter Butter- Peanut Butter Pie If you hadn’t heard already, our food blogging friend Jennie lost her husband Mikey last week. It was a sudden and unexpected loss. The kind of loss that is unfair in every way. In the midst of grieving for her lost love, she asked the world to make a peanut butter pie (Mikey’s favorite) and share it with someone they love. In response, the world made pies. po' man meals - cheesy roasted broccoli patties the love for broccoli in my house is...divided. me and my girls will steam some broccoli, throw a little butter/salt on it them and eat a big o' HUGE bowl of it, content as can be. my boys? not so much. when the broccoli comes out of the fridge, they take off running in the other direction. at best, i can cut it up into little itsy bitsy pieces and stir it into some rice and my eldest son with eat it. but i had a plan. you can't mess with momma. i made these delicious patties with cheese and panko breadcrumbs for some crunch. then i roasted the mess out of them until they were browned and crunchy, yet cheesy in the middle. roasting the broccoli made it taste nutty and extra good. the result? no division now exists in the smith household! united we stand! :)

Brown Butter Double Fudge Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cookies Little bit of a mouthful there. But it’s like a cookie on top of another cookie! Yeah. broccoli parmesan fritters Last week, it was pointed out to me that among the 750 recipes in the archives, there is but a single recipe that utilizes broccoli. Just one! (It’s a great one, though.) For comparison, there are 11 recipes that use cauliflower and 26 with mushrooms. What terrible oversight could have led to this?

Titanic –– Love, Courage and Apple Meringue The Titanic sank 100 years ago on April 15th, 1912. It is extraordinary that even after 100 years, the doomed Titanic continues to fascinate. My friends at 12 Bottle Bar and I are in a Titanic mood as the anniversary approaches, and why not? There is so much to share about the voyage, the ship and the people –– what they ate (my field of interest) –– what they drank (cocktails are the 12 Bottle Bar bailiwick) ­­–– so much that we decided to do another post together. Two blogs, two perspectives… if you’ve never been to 12 Bottle Bar you are in for a Titanic treat.
